Alcove Queens

Local fitted furniture maker Melanie Woods has launched a new venture called Alcove Queens, providing DIY training in your own home.

She explains:

"It's a great way for people to help beat the credit crunch and learn some basic diy skills so they can do some odd jobs around the house. The idea is people can book a one-to-one or small group booking. We come to their house and do a 2-3 hour lesson tailored to what they want - putting up shelves, wall fixings, how to use a drill, cordless, hand saw and so on."

Time Out has already profiled the business but Brockley Central is happy to help spread the word. If anyone wants to use this thread to organise a group of people to take part in a session, feel free.
